Photographer's Note

This must be one of the last pictures with my old camera before it packed in its service.

The glacier lagoon of Jökusarlon in southern Iceland is definitely one of the highlight of any trip to Iceland. The lagoon was formed when the glacier of Vatnajökull started to recede and is today Icelands deepest lake, littered with hundreds of iceberg in any shape and color from pure white over blue to black.
Arriving there in the late afternoon of a rainy day with gale force winds around the freezing point was certainly an adventure in itself. While the almost horizontal rain beat ones face, the light was constantly changing and the sight changed from almost clear to foggy that one couldn't see the hand in front of you any more in the matter of minutes. But, having said that, the mood and atmosphere of the place under these misty conditions was truly amazing and extraordinary. As mentioned in the opening of this comment, my camera didn't really liked these conditions and even though it was protected with a rain protection, arriving back in our hotel it was toast. Fortunately I had a second D80 with me to continuo our trip around Iceland.
And anyway thus I had my long yearned excuse to upgrade my old D90 to a D610 after returning home.
